Roma are interested in signing Chelsea target Yannick Carrasco, according to the Corriere Dello Sport.

The Giallorossi look to set to sell both Emerson Palmieri and Edin Dzeko to the Blues, but it seems they could use the money from the double deal to land the Belgian international.

Carrasco has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge since June, and the Atletico Madrid winger is reportedly available for transfer during the January transfer window.

The Spanish club’s capture of Vitolo from Sevilla means the 24 year old will see his game time reduced even further during the second half of the season.

The Belgian has a difficult relationship with manager Diego Simeone, and has started just two of the last nine league games since returning from a knee injury in November.

Roma’s sporting director Monchi has reportedly met with Carrasco’s agent in Italy to discuss a potential switch to Serie A.
